すべては流れのなかにある

すべては流れの中にある。流れこそが真実。武道においても、賭け事においても流れがすべてである。流れを読みきれない者はこれらの世界では生き残れない。20年間無敗の麻雀の達人、桜井章一は言う。

「麻雀卓を回っている情報に意味はない。流れをつないでいけば世界は広がる。流れの感覚は非常に大事である」

また、分子生物学者福岡伸一は言う。

「生命とは動的平衡にある流れである。生命を構成するタンパク質は作られる際から壊される。それは生命がその秩序を維持するための唯一の方法であった。しかし、なぜ生命は絶え間なく壊され続けながらも、もとの平衡を維持することができるのであろうか。その答えはタンパク質のかたちが体現している相補性にある。生命は、その内部に張り巡らされたかたちの相補性によって支えられている。その相補性によって、絶え間ない流れの中で動的に平衡状態を保ちえているのである」

古今東西の先人もまた、時間とともに七変化する気の流れを9数理で説いた。魔方陣だ。すべては流れの中にある、流れに身を委ねよということだ。しかしこれはなかなか難しい。どうしても身構えてしまう。常識や固定観念、経験知という色眼鏡でつい見てしまう。そうすると、流れに身を委ねることができなくなる。流れに乗れなくなる。動くときに動けなく、動いてはいけないときに動いてしまう。機・度・間、これが自由自在にできる人は流れに身を委ね切れている。自我という厚い壁をもつ人は当然できない。自己と他、内と外が自在に交流してはじめて可能となる。この壁を私は治療で破ろうと試みている。

heartbeat therapy

An approach to the possibility of prenatal treatment: Heartbeat therapy

What is heartbeat therapy?

First, the mother’s heartbeat is recorded for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The recorded heartbeat is then played to the baby twice for a total of five minutes (2x2.5 minutes) via two pads which are placed in two spots on the baby.

What are some of the effects of heartbeat therapy?

While the effects of heartbeat therapy are variable, it has significant effects on children under ten years old. One effect is that the baby begins to fawn on the mother, stimulating the mother’s maternal instincts. Consequently, the mother finds the baby to be cute and therefore becomes more receptive towards the baby. After this, the bond between the baby and the mother becomes stronger and they are able to communicate better. Therefore, the mother enjoys raising the baby more.

Additionally, problems that babies may face, such as crying and eczema, are relieved.

In order to demonstrate the effects of heartbeat therapy, some examples have been provided.

Example 1:

A six month-old boy with a fever (38.9°C), runny nose and cough. After heartbeat therapy, the boy defecated and returned to his normal temperature.

Example 2:
A one year, three month-old boy with a fever one day after being vaccinated. The fever persisted for several days. He had a fever of 38.8°C, suppressed appetite and was crying when he was first examined.
One day after having heartbeat therapy, the boy’s temperature lowered to 37.0°C and after another day, he returned to his usual temperature.

Example 3:
A one year, seven month-old boy with chronic bronchial asthma. After five sessions of heartbeat therapy, the boy’s coughing stopped.

Example 4:
A five year-old girl with severe symptoms of chronic bronchial asthma. As her symptoms were severe, her mother rented the machine to perform the therapy at home each day. Every 2 weeks, they would come to the clinic and the mother would have her heartbeat recorded. After three weeks of therapy, the symptoms disappeared. Six months have passed and this girl's asthma attacks have not yet recurred.

Example 5:

A five year-old girl with autism. When she was first examined, she was screaming, couldn’t defecate or urinate by herself and she possessed the IQ of a one and a half year-old child. The mother rented the machine to perform the therapy at home each day.

A month later, the girl’s screaming became less loud.

Two months later the girl started having conversations while sitting on the mother’s lap.

After three months, the girl began showing signs of curiosity and concentration as well as being able to demonstrate understanding of what others are saying to her.

After half a year, she possessed knowledge of more vocabulary and started to use her initiative to play. She also became clearer while speaking.

After ten months, she stopped screaming and started to become calmer. She also started to become interested in music.

After one year, she possessed stronger self-assertiveness. She is still undergoing heartbeat therapy.

The importance of being alert to the changes in children


During heartbeat therapy, it is extremely important that the mother is alert to the changes in her child--for instance in facial expression. If the mother is not alert to these changes, therapy will take longer to affect the child.

Below are some scenarios which demonstrate the importance of a mother’s alertness to her child while undergoing heartbeat therapy.

Example 1:
An eight-month-old boy with atopic dermatitis. When he was first examined, his face was red and sore, his skin was dry and his kneecaps and elbows had exudates from excessive scratching.

He had heartbeat therapy once or twice a week. After three months his skin became very smooth, as though his atopy had disappeared.

This child’s mother introduced another family to heartbeat therapy. This child was an eight-month-old girl who would cry excessively at night. She had heartbeat therapy three times for the first week. Soon, the girl’s facial expression was generally more positive, but her mother didn’t notice this change. The following week, the child had three rounds of therapy, but the mother said that the baby had not yet stopped crying at night. She didn’t notice the change in the girl’s facial expression. As the mother did not notice the change, she stopped coming to the clinic.

Thirteen months old: The most important period in developing the foundations of the baby’s life

The most important period in raising children is the first thirteen months and fifteen months for boys after giving birth. Growing up safely without getting ill during this period is ideal. It’s the most important time to develop the foundations of the baby’s life and, therefore, the mother has to protect and nurture the baby during this period.  If the baby feels unsafe or uncomfortable, the baby would still be affected by this later. Therefore, ensuring that the baby feels safe and comfortable is crucial. Babies grow when they are protected, so paying attention to the baby is required.

After feeding the baby, he or she should be held on the mother’s left side so as to allow the baby to hear the mother’s heartbeat so that he or she can feel safe and protected.

At eleven to thirteen months, particular attention should be paid to the child’s mental development, as this is the first peak in the development of the child as they start to speak and learn words. Therefore, during this period, meningitis is exceedingly worrying, due to the rapid development of the child’s brain.

It is also an important period to nurture babies. Even though they are unable to understand why what they did is bad, they are able to understand what they are not allowed to do. At the age of three or four, children can understand what is good and what is bad.

Independent period of four to five years old

The age of four to five years old is an independent period. When children show an independent attitude, treating them as individuals is important. Children gain confidence in this period, so it is important that a parent does not complete the work for their child, but rather let him or her complete it him/herself.

Getting children to behave themselves is also important because without this type of upbringing, they cannot express the inner-beauty they have.

Children should be brought up slowly

It’s very natural for parents to hope their children will grow quickly. However, starting to walk and teething at an early age are caused by insufficient nutrition. When the child has adequate nutrition, the ability to walk, and teething develop more slowly.

The later the child starts to talk and to express emotions such as shyness, the more flexibly and more obediently he or she will grow. Children who appear as adults acting childish (e.g. being impulsive or being extremely aggressive when angry) may have become this way by maturing too early, without the chance to develop mentally to match their physical development. Unlike animals, human beings have a variety of emotions such as compassion, calmness and shyness. Therefore, raising children in a healthy manner isn’t about encouraging them to grow quickly or become mature at an early age, but about bringing them up in a fulfilling environment.

Abnormality caused by insufficient nutrition

Insufficient nutrition in children of thirteen months can cause abnormality in the development of the hip joints and the ankles. On the other hand, children with sufficient nutrition will possess thin and fit ankles.

Children should ideally start walking in later stages of development. If the child is forced to walk, the development of the hip joints may be suppressed, which could lead to serious disabilities including those of the brain. While disabilities of the brain may not develop, the baby may still develop displacement of the hip joints which can cause menstrual pain, menstrual irregularities and even infertility later in life. Babies must undertake a series of steps in order to effectively learn how to walk.

The first step is being able to hold their neck straight.

The second step in learning how to walk is being able to roll over.

Crawling is the third step.

When the baby is able to crawl with competence, he or she will begin to attempt standing by holding on to something.

After all of these steps, babies will be able to walk by themselves. Even if the parents want their child to develop rapidly, they must not expedite this natural process artificially.

Advice to raise children

1. Speak to the child and have a conversation.

Some mothers think that there is no point talking to children because they cannot understand what the mother is saying. However, children learn to speak because they understand their parents. Therefore speaking to the child is important.

2. Weighing the child.

Abnormality in children can be determined by weighing the child. Even if the child has a fever, if he or she weighs his or her usual weight, there’s no reason for concern. However if the child appears to weigh less than his or her usual weight, this could indicate a problem. This could be caused by the child hitting his or her head, or feeling insecure or sick. You should not weigh the child on a scale. People’s bodies weigh different when they are nervous or relaxed. Therefore, this weight must be determined by holding the baby.

3. Judge the baby’s health condition by the elasticity of his or her inner thighs.

When the baby has good nutrition, his or her inner thighs become flexible. When the inner thighs are loose when pinched, this indicates a lack of nutrition.

When the baby’s face becomes enlarged, and her or his inner thighs are loose, she or he is taking in too much grain.

When the baby’s inner thighs are hard and his or her face becomes small, he or she is taking in too much meat.

When children take in too much grain during babyhood, they will have little resistance to the outside world. When children take in too much meat, they will become oversensitive.

4. How to distinguish a baby’s crying pattern.

As babies are not able to speak, they cry to express their desires. The three primary cries babies make are:

1        when they are hungry or thirsty

2        when they are want to defecate or urinate

3        when their bodies are placed in uncomfortable positions.

In addition to breastfeeding, babies have to drink water, especially after taking a bath. When the baby is placed in a position which is close to the interior of the womb, he or she may sleep more comfortably.

5. Children’s diseases in the process of development

It’s a regular part of healthy development that children sometimes catch a cold or have diarrhoea. By recovering from the illness on their own, children will become tolerant of these illnesses as adults.

Children who are not exposed to these illnesses do not develop this tolerance, and will find the illnesses more unbearable.

6. Babies’ sleep

Sleep is the most important factor in a baby’s health. Getting babies to sleep deeply is crucial. If the baby doesn’t sleep deeply, no matter how much nutrition he or she is given, he or she will not take in the nutrition.

Also, a room with good sunlight becomes cold at night and the humidity in the room is likely to change. Therefore, the bedroom should be somewhere with no sunlight and a minimal change in temperature throughout the day. Airy rooms and fans are not suitable, either.

7. Drinking water after a bath

Getting children to drink water after taking a bath is important. 

Standing while holding something to walk-kidneys, bones and brain are closely related

A child who stands while balancing themselves on something is less affected by the force of gravity. Children are affected by gravity when they crawl, but, due to developing strength, will be less affected by gravity by standing up. Strengthening the function of the kidneys, the brain and bones will allow them to develop. The kidneys, bones and the brain are closely linked. Standing while holding onto something, therefore, not only allows for the development of muscles but also for the development of the brain and bones. For example:

A healthy girl (she was using the heartbeat of her mother when she was eight months pregnant)who started standing while holding onto something and whose teeth started growing when she was ten months old.

She then changed to the heartbeat of her mother when she was five months pregnant because at around three months of pregnancy, the child’s kidneys start functioning and at around five months of pregnancy the kidneys become complete.

I thought the heartbeat at five months of pregnancy would work very well to strengthen the function of the kidneys as at this stage of pregnancy the kidneys’ functions become complete. The result was excellent. My plan was successful. The girl had changed drastically. Her skin became very smooth as if it had shed. Her face appeared calmer and it looked like she had grown.

Her mother told me that the girl sweat so much the futon got very wet the night after the therapy. The next day she defecated a lot. She became calm. She stopped screaming when she felt uncomfortable. After taking a bath, she stopped crying when her grandmother dried her and she could wait for her mother to get out of the bath. She started wanting to be breastfed more.

This drastic change astonished her husband and mother too.

The mother’s impression when she used her heartbeat from eight months of pregnancy was that the girl became very strong and self-assertive.

After she changed it to her heartbeat from five months of pregnancy, the girl was still self-assertive but calmer.

Something important to note when conducting heartbeat therapy is that the use of the initial heartbeat, recorded during the morning sickness period, makes the child cry even more at night and displeases them.

Dutch famine-the Dutch famine birth cohort study

A few months before WW2 finished, there was a famine in the Netherlands. At the end of November, 1944, in the major western cities of the Netherlands, including Amsterdam, the intake calories for most people was down to around one thousand kilocalories per day.

The next February, in the western part of the Netherlands, this number went down to 580 kilocalories. So severe was the famine that the main food was bread, potato and sugar cubes. Later, it was discovered that this famine had a serious influence on the foetuses of pregnant mothers affected by the famine. A follow-up study is still being conducted, however here are some of the facts of the famine so far.

        Those who were born during the famine were very underweight compared to those who were born before the famine. It was discovered that there is a correlation between being born underweight and weakness in newborn babies.

        Those who experienced the famine from 4 month of foetal development to birth had a significant chance of obesity. This rate is two times high as the rate of those who didn’t experience the famine while in foetal development.

        Those who experienced the famine while in foetal development had a significantly higher risk of developing schizophrenia. The risk of emotional disturbances such as depression increased, too. An increase in antisocial personality disorder in men was also seen.

        The result of the research of the weight of birth targeted only at women showed that those who experienced the famine after seven months in foetal development were born abnormally small. However, those who experienced the famine in the first three months of foetal development were born bigger than average. It is speculated that the reaction which tried to compensate the stress toward the food shortage was happening in the womb.

        After the age of fifty, regardless of gender, those who experienced the famine while in foetal development were more likely to become obese. Hypertension, heart diseases and type 2 diabetes were common too. However, how these people were affected varied based on the period in which they experienced the famine. For example, heart diseases and obesity, as well as an increased incidence of breast cancer, were seen in those who experienced the famine for the first three months of foetal development. Those who experienced the famine at the four to six months of foetal development had a variety of problems in their lungs and kidneys. Impaired glucose tolerance was common in those who experienced the famine three months before being born.

The possibility of prenatal treatment by heartbeat therapy

What I noted about this study is that how the child became affected at birth depends on which period they experienced the famine. For example, heart disease and obesity were related to experiencing the famine in the first three months of foetal development. In addition, those women who experienced the famine during this period were more likely to get breast cancer. Those who experienced the famine from four months to six months had numerous problems in their lungs and kidneys. Impaired glucose tolerance was most prominent in those who experienced the famine for the last three months until they were born. The heart primordium is formed nineteen days after fertilization and the primitive heart is formed after 28 days of fertilization. Therefore, the relation between the first three months of foetal development and heart disease is very convincing. The connection between the fourth to sixth month of foetal development and the kidneys is clear, considering the fact that kidneys start developing from three months of foetal development and the development is completed at around five months. During the eighth month of pregnancy, the subcutaneous fat increases and the foetus become more rounded and by the tenth month the foetus develops white fat and become heavier. Therefore, it makes sense that impaired glucose tolerance was commonly seen in those who experienced the famine around this time. Through the Dutch famine birth cohort study, the evidence heavily suggests that the utero environment has an effect on our health on a long term basis. This is applicable in the type of heartbeat therapy I have developed. Although I haven’t verified yet, I believe heartbeat therapy can be applied not only for children, but also as a treatment for disorders in adults. For instance, using an expectant mother’s heartbeat at eight, nine or ten months pregnancy for a diabetic adult, an expectant mother’s heartbeat at four, five or six months pregnancy for an adult with kidney disease and an expectant mother’s heartbeat in her first trimester of pregnancy for an adult with heart disease. The most important thing in heartbeat therapy is using the mother’s heartbeat at five months before and after foetal development. During this time, the kidneys, which have important roles in oriental medicine, complete development.  In particular, by using it on a child who has yet to begin to stand, using something to balance him or herself, the changes will be so dramatic they will even surprise others. His/her skin will become smooth, he or she will sleep better and will become more energetic. His/her facial expression will become calmer and his/her emotions will become more stable.

More examples of heartbeat therapy

A ten-month-old boy with atopic dermatitis. He had eczema all over his body and some of the parts had leachate. He was quiet, unenergetic and was not self-asserting. Heartbeat therapy was conducted once a week. After the third treatment, he became energetic, laughing a lot, fawning on his mother and became heavier when held. The eczema became better too. Above all, his mother noticed his smile, and she started cradling her son even more. So the child fawned on his mother even more. What I always feel when I conduct heartbeat therapy is that the communication between the mother and the child becomes very strong.

A ten-month-old boy crying excessively at night. He’d been crying at night for three weeks. He would cry every hour causing his mother to become stressed from lack of sleep. Therefore, he started undertaking heartbeat therapy. After the first treatment, the mother realised that the baby started fawning on her more than he used to before. At night, he had a fever (37.7°C) and cried even harder. The next morning, he defecated a large amount. On that day, they came to the clinic. During the therapy, the baby fawned on his mother very much compared to the day before. It was obvious that he became much more energetic than the day before. When being held, he appeared much heavier. The next morning, he defecated a lot again. Heartbeat therapy was conducted the next day again. After the third treatment, he stopped crying at night and slept very well. The cause of the baby’s cry was constipation. After defecating a lot, his cry disappeared. If his mother had used antipyretics to reduce his fever, the result may have been negative. The cause of his fever was constipation, and in these instances it is not advisable to use antipyretics.

A four year, seven-month old boy with pneumonia and a fever of 40°C (both had been present for about two weeks). Heartbeat therapy was conducted five times on him. In two weeks, his temperature went down and he recovered. After around a month, he gained weight and he obviously became healthier. His constitution has changed drastically. He became calmer and more compassionate.

This example shows us that fevers should not be reduced by medicine but being allowed to run their course. It is very important for children’s health. At four to five years old, children are more likely to have a fever and their internal reform is dependent on how they deal with the fever. The ages of four and five are a good chance for internal reform.

A three-month-old boy. His mother said that the shape of her breasts made it impossible for the baby to place his mouth around her nipple to suck milk. Heartbeat therapy was conducted to him on the first visit. When they came back after a week, his mother said that after a few days of heartbeat therapy, he started drinking her breast milk and he started laughing more often than before. However, as his thighs were inflexible, I recommended further treatments with heartbeat therapy.

A one year and three month old boy who is restless. He would always move around and make people around him uncomfortable. His nutritional status was good and but he was a little bit overfed and therefore slightly overweight. He was still being breastfed. He had heartbeat therapy done once a week. After three and a half months the relationship in his family became better. The trigger was in his mother’s change. She used to get her child to take heartbeat therapy at her convenience. However, when she began to feel that she was doing it for her son, she could stop breastfeeding him. As the result, he changed and his grandparents who wouldn’t get close to him started to adore and take care of him. His father also started coming home earlier which made the husband and the wife’s relationships harmonious. The other day, I got a souvenir from the mother. She said “Finally, we could go travelling all together. My son didn’t rage or cry in the plane but sat down quietly and behaved well. We had a very nice time over there. Thank you very much.”

A one year and two month old boy with eczema. He had red, sore eczema on his face, back and belly. He started taking heartbeat therapy, though he barely recovered from the problem. The biggest cause was his mother’s anxiety. Mothers have to have the strength to believe in their children’s power for living and power to grow. By experiencing the process of pregnancy, birth and raising children, women become strong and gentle. I advised her “As long as you are anxious and insecure, your son’s eczema is not going to get better. You have to be the cornerstone of your child’s security, because your son cannot live without you.” “I can understand you. It’s no wonder for mothers to become anxious if your son’s eczema will be better or worse. However that insecurity is making his eczema worse. Children can pick up their mothers’ anxious. As long as you keep raising him with this anxious, he will not get better. Skin is strongly influenced by mental state. Believe in your son. Believe in your son’s strength to grow. Without this strength to believe, bringing up children doesn’t work well.” After around one month since they started heartbeat therapy, she changed drastically. She made up her mind that she is going to protect her son. Then her son changed too. He used to scratch his body, because of his eczema, without any facial expression or vocalisations while waiting for his turn at the waiting room. However, after his mother made up her mind to protect him, he giggled loudly and showed his smile to people around him. Her mother in law would criticize her saying “I healed my son’s eczema with steroid ointment but you are not using it” but he still has eczema on his body which gave her distrust toward using steroids. Even her husband told off her for not using steroid ointment and the house was filled with an uncomfortable atmosphere. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the mother was very anxious and insecure, as she didn’t know what to trust and what to do. However, when she made up her mind, things started going well. The bond in the family became strong and everyone was happy.

老化とエントロピー

秩序は無秩序へ、形あるものは崩れる。エントロピー増大の法則である。

生命現象は、この世界にあって、もっとも秩序ある仕組みである。エントロピー増大の法則は、この生命の上にも、細胞ひとつひとつまで容赦なく降り注ぎ、タンパク質を変性させ、細胞膜を酸化し、DNAを傷つける。すこしでもその法則に抗うために、生命はあえて自らを壊すことを選択した。率先して分解することで、変性、酸化、損傷を、つまり増大するエントロピーを必死に汲み出そうとしているのだ。

生体において、エントロピーは水でもって体外へ汲みだされる。それ故、いつまでも若くありたいと思うなら、老化を防ぎたいと思うなら、発汗と排尿を大事にすることだ。常に汗をかき、尿の状態を常にチェックする。オシッコを我慢しない、尿の色、回数、量などを常に注意深く観察する。東洋医学的には、水を支配する脾臓・肺・腎臓の問題となる。具体的には、呼吸と食、それに足腰である。

破壊と再生

生物はわざわざエネルギーを使って積極的に自らを壊しては、つくりかえている。最新の生物学が明らかにしたことは、タンパク質の合成経路は一通りしかないけれど、分解経路は何通りもある、という事実だ。つまり、生物は壊すことの方が主であるということだ。何故ゆえに、そこまでして壊し続けるのであろうか。

秩序は無秩序へ、形あるものは崩れる。エントロピー増大の法則である。

生命はどこまでも積極的であり、常に破壊を伴っている。受け身ではなく、消極的でもない。家内安全、生活の安定などは幻想に過ぎない。安全・安定の裏には常に破壊が潜んでいる。常に前を向き、自らを壊し、変化させることだ。破壊は再生への最短距離であり、破壊は八開でもある。
